Puppy Kindergarten - 6 Weeks $175.00*

A six-week class for your new puppy to provide a positive foundation for the rest of his life. Did you know that new puppies will learn more about the world between the ages of 3 to 20 weeks than in the rest of their entire lifetime? Take advantage of this critical socialization window by enrolling in a puppy class now. *Please add CT sales tax -- $175 plus $11.11 = $186.11

Please note: Puppy classes are ongoing, and may be joined at any time through mid-term

Skills to be Learned by Your Puppy:

  • Handling and socialization exercises so your pup will be comfortable with all kinds of people and children
  • Establish a relationship without punishment
  • How to prevent/manage play biting, jumping and chewing
  • A controlled puppy play session to teach socialization, coordination, and bite inhibition

Basic Manners- 7 Weeks $188.00*

Each class will consist of seven, one-hour sessions for dogs 5 months and older. In fact, any age dog can attend. Sometimes the dog is trained when he is young, but after a few years, we let things slide and that's when behavior problems start. The whole family is invited to come. That way, the dog will not get confused with different methods, commands or hand signals. This is also considered a continuation of the puppy kindergarten class although your dog is not required to have attended one.
*Please add CT sales tax --$188. plus $11.94 = $199.94

Skills to be Learned:

  • Sit, stand, down, stay; various recalls including "name recognition", "emergency coming", and regular, formal ones
  • How to exhibit self-control when around other people and dogs
  • How to focus on you even around distractions
  • Handlers are taught "doggie communication"
  • A "bonus trick" with each lesson 

"What Rescue Dogs Want and Need" Classes - 7 Weeks $188.00*

Train your rescue dog to be a well behaved, well balanced family dog in our specialized classes. Rescues come with all kinds of issues that are not common in a newly acquired puppy. This is similar to the Basic Manners class and open to all dogs 5 months and up.
*Please add CT sales tax --$188 plus $11.94 = $199.94

Intermediate/Canine Good Citizen - 8 Weeks $195.00*

Here's a chance to develop your dog's skills to perfection. Dogs must have taken the Basic Manners to enroll. Off-lead work is introduced slowly for heeling, recalls and stays. Many distractions are introduced and getting a better response to all the commands is taught. Handlers and dogs are also prepared for the Canine Good Citizen test. Your AKC approved evaluator, Michelle Larson, will give the test at the end of the eight-week course, along with a graduation and diplomas.
*Please add CT sales tax --$195 plus $12.38 = $207.38

Agility Classes - 6 Weeks $185.00*

We offer 3 levels of classes for fun using regulation, standard size equipment. Beginners are introduced to all the equipment and simple sequences are set up. Intermediate and Advanced concentrate on accomplishing more intricate sequencing, body maneuvers and positioning for handlers.
*Please add CT sales tax --$185 plus $11.75 = $196.75

Dog Scents Class - 6 Weeks $185.00

This six week course is a lot of fun!!! It is designed to entertain and stimulate your dog's mental capabilities by using his nose.

Our classes focus on building enthusiasm in dogs for finding their toy or treat bag hidden in an obvious place at first. A lot of praise and generous rewards are used to encourage the dog to continue to use his nose to find the "hidden treasure." Later, we will be using different scents to have the dog generalize his ability to "find it". Handlers find that even shy or nervous dogs have their confidence built up because they have to concentrate on their "work". That's what Dog Scents is all about... giving your dog a job to do so that they have a purpose in life besides lay around and greet you when you come home!
